App Description

Quick reference guide for rock hounds to identify and learn about the rocks, gems, and minerals that they are looking to collect. Designed for easy use and fast response without information overload.

This App gives you information and pictures of the most common types of samples collected, such as Garnets, Agates, Geodes. It is not cluttered with information about samples that rock hounds are not interested in. Who is looking for Allanite or Manganbabingtonite?

Features of this App:
- View information and pictures of the most common collected rocks, gems, and minerals.

- Search by name and information to narrow your results to view.

- Add your own using pictures from your Photo Library. Enter name and description of your new addition and assign pictures from your Photo Library for the Icon and Pics pages. Once the pics are added from your Photo Library, they can be deleted, as the picture information is stored in the App.

- Tips section gives information about collecting as well as App specific information.

- Full screen pictures viewable in Landscape or Portrait mode.

- No internet connection needed. All data stored locally, so there is no delay in sorting or viewing.

- No Ads or in-App purchases. Nothing else to buy.

If you have an iPhone, you may be interested in the app "RockHound", which contains GPS data of collection sites and what you will find there, along with this module for identification. The RockHound app will not work on the iPod Touch, since the GPS data is critical for its use.
